Prized by chefs around the world, binchotan is a very pure high carbon charcoal made from oak. Unlike lump charcoal and briquettes, because of high carbon content it is completely odourless – enabling you to enjoy the natural flavours of the food. To recognise binchotan charcoal, tap two sticks of it together and you should hear a light metallic sound.
